Scottish Abbeys and Priories by Richard Fawcett
Book DescriptionFrom the foundation of Iona in 563 and the spread of Columban monasticism, through the impact of the Reformation right up to the present day, this book looks at the architecture and archaeology of the abbeys and priories in Scotland. Those dating from medieval times are some of the most inspiring buildings ever raised on Scottish soil, and Richard Fawcett brings to life not only the most famous examples, but also many lesser known foundations with the help of maps, plans, photographs and reconstructions, pointing out what can still be seen today.
